Ny '85 Honda Civic wagon is still going strong at 282,956 mi.
Near-identical '84, at 215,459 mi., presently laid-up while I get
around to checking drive-end of cam for suspected cracking, replace
it. (I've had several of these failures - bad design - sharp corner
produces stress concentration cracking. Honda should know better.
Any mechanical designer worth his salt does!)
But... reading what you guys are posting, I'd probably not buy Honda
today - looks like a lot of trouble.
Wonder if there are any decent VeeDubs around? Had several real
goodies in the '60's. Always lusted for a crew-cab pickup, canoe on
top, dirt bike in the back, junk-yard dog nearby. <G>
Gawd, don't I sound like an old hippie!
